Weston, W.VA-- If you've ever stayed in a hotel chances are you didn't use all the soap provided, or you didn't use it at all.

So what exactly do they do with all that unused soap, especially the ones left in showers? One resort has found an answer, recycle. Stonewall Resort in Lewis County is having used soap from hotels recycled.

According to the Associated Press, Stonewall and the Weston Wal-Mart are teaming up to make the soap all new again.

The resort plans to collect the used soap from guests, pack it up, and ship it to the Global Soap Project which is a nonprofit located in Norcross, GA. That's where it will go through the processing center. The soap will be stripped of impurities and molded into new bar that will then go to the needy across the world.

According to the Global Soap Project, more than 2 million bars of soap are discarded every day by U.S. hotels.
